Applicants are invited to submit proposals describing innovative approaches to ultimately cure HIV disease. The goal of these grants is to encourage collaborations between multiple disciplines in order to facilitate development of preliminary data for future submissions of program projects or equivalent. Collaboration with CTSI institutions (Cedars-Sinai, Charles Drew University, LA BioMed/Harbor-UCLA and UCLA) is encouraged.

Basic and Translational Research
The UCLA AIDS Institute/Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) are accepting applications for seed grants to fund basic and translational studies with special emphasis on collaborative and multi-disciplinary studies. These seed grants will be funded by the UCLA AI/CFAR, UCLA Pediatric AIDS Coalition and other private sources.

Clinical Therapeutics and Biomedical Prevention
The UCLA AIDS Institute and Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) are accepting applications for seed grants to fund collaborative clinical studies relevant to HIV. Special consideration will be given to new investigators, high-risk, high-benefit projects and new research direction projects. These seed grants will be funded by the UCLA AI/CFAR and other private sources.

Prevention and Implementation Research
The UCLA CFAR and UCLA AIDS Institute are accepting Letters of Intent for this seed grant proposal to fund behavioral science research. The objective is to provide pilot funding for projects that will eventually be submitted to NIH and private funders to fund larger grants.

International Research on HIV/AIDS
The UCLA CFAR/AIDS Institute and UCLA Center for World Health are accepting seed grant proposals to fund global HIV prevention, clinical, and policy research. The objective is to provide pilot funding for projects that foster collaboration between UCLA and scientists from low- and middle-income countries, in order to stimulate HIV/AIDS research in these countries.
